Mad Bodgin’ Mage Log: Zerkova Reborn

Privateer Press has announced they are releasing a resculpt for Zerkova!

They will be replacing the old “Would you like to eat a snow cone” pose

I thought this would be a good time as any to look back on the two bodges I did of the the character so I didn’t have to field the original model.

The first was done back in summer 2012:
Used a Reaper fig as a base, carved the heck out of it with a exacto blade and wire snips (and possibly a dremel, can’t remember).
28599502
Kept original weapons and hat, then molded the boiler and shoulderpads.
After that it was time for Greenstuff and Greystuff:

And after that the painting:

Wish the paintjob was better, looking back on it now.
A better alternative to bring to the tabletop nonetheless.

Pretty sure I managed to shoot myself with the Behemoth’s bombard on her first outing. :(
She may be converted to a Doomreaver UA (cause Doomreavers have been awesome for me lately) or something at a later date in light of the new release.

Pitched the idea for the 2nd one during another bodge in 2013 (that one involved the Haley1 variant) using this lass as a base for Zerkova:

Vote was to got for it, so I did.
Was already assembled when I got it from a friend but that wasn’t anything a freefall to a concrete floor couldn’t fix.
Took the Zerkova from a diorama I built to use for parts and set to work:

A pretty easy bodge, hardest part was removing the halberd handle (or at least hiding it). After adding fur via Greystuff it was time to slap some primer and paint on it:

Like this one better, unlike most of my other work, this one is all Privateer Press.
Also putting this bodge next to the resculpt, they are kinda doing reversed poses of each other, neat.
